It's the mysterious series about the growing immigrant who is still trying to live with people in the most depressing part of the city. It's a dark area and a man is forbidden to live, love or move anywhere. Over time, hope lives, as a human informant, Rycroft Philostrate, and a refugee named Vignette Stonemoss, both entering a different path when they revive a dangerous relationship.
The Amazon series is easier to follow even as it introduces initially-unconnected characters in multiple social classes. This gives "Carnival Row" plenty of areas to explore. If only it all felt more unique.
I wonder how wise it was for Amazon to invest so heavily in a show that is very clearly at risk of being cannibalised by its own parent. If The Boys doesn't chew it up, that $250 million Lord of the Rings surely will.
